Guzu Gallery Presents
Strange Beasts 3: A Tribute to Kaiju & Japanese Pop Culture

November 20, 2015 - New Year's Day 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, November 20 • 7-10pm

What is that? Can you feel the ground rumbling? It's time for another Strange Beasts art show…the fan favorite! This time around Guzu will expand the show a bit, and allow other Japanese pop culture influences to sneak in. In addition to the always popular kaiju characters — familiar faces from tokusatsu, manga and anime will adorn the gallery walls!

The opening reception will be on Friday, November 20th from 7 to 10pm and the artwork will remain up through New Year's Day. Limited edition prints and original artwork will be available for purchase. There will be a bone-crushing, live musical performance by Austin rock instrumentalists, Beast of Dean…and the Bedlam City Kaiju Safety Commission will be on hand to give us a rundown of safety precautions, battle techniques, and what-not-to-do's in the event of a kaiju attack! Following the presentation will be a screening of Kaijutsu by director Adriel Jimenez. As always, admission is free and all ages are welcome!

Guzu Gallery welcomes everyone to the show, but if you can't make it out, the artwork will be available for purchase in their online store on Monday, November 23rd around Noon CST.

Stay tuned to Guzu's social media outlets for more info and sneak previews as the days get closer to show time!
